Nocturnal SUP Adventures in Waikiki
The beautiful, energetic city of Honolulu comes to life every evening as the vibrant Pacific sun sets far in the western horizon. As the sun gradually disappears, many tourists assemble inside fine restaurants, craft breweries, and upbeat nightclubs. But a select few individuals paddle out into the clear teal ocean at Kahanamoku Beach just before dawn on a state-of-the-art SUP (standup paddleboard). Every Friday evening, Nocturnal Adventures Hawaii guides tourists and kama’aina alike into the Pacific Ocean to witness a breathtaking sunset, dazzling Waikiki fireworks, and a flourishing sea turtle population. Prince Waikiki is a 12-minute stroll from Kahanamoku Beach, where you’ll learn how to correctly SUP before launching into the sea. SUPing has quickly become of the top things to do in Waikiki after dark.
Nocturnal Adventures Hawaii
Nocturnal Adventures Hawaii is still a growing company as they currently only offer two water activities in Oahu: Firework Fridays and Haleiwa Sunset. The sunsets in Honolulu are genuinely awe-inspiring. You don’t need any prior experience to join a nocturnal SUPing adventure as their professional guides will provide in-depth lessons before your journey. You may also choose to couple up with a spouse, friend, or child. Each SUP is equipped with LED lights to not only help illuminate the route but to shed light on the sea creatures below. The shallow water near Kahanamoku Beach is home to a flourishing sea turtle population, and they’re particularly friendly after dark.
Vibrant Hawaii Sunsets
After learning the tricks of the trade, your group will paddle out into the ocean at dusk. Honolulu, much like Oahu’s North Shore, has vibrant sunsets that shine a beautiful blend of burnt orange, bright yellow, and sky blue with a purple haze. Occasionally, if you’re fortunate, the colorful sunset will be combined with a rainbow high above Waikiki. Nocturnal Adventures Hawaii can be quite romantic because of the quiet, secluded nature of the journey.
It’s Independence Day every Friday in Honolulu as people flock to our beaches to witness the weekly fireworks, which have become one of the most popular free things to do in Waikiki. The Waikiki fireworks start around 7:45-8 p.m. every Friday near Kahanamoku Beach. Prince Waikiki’s guests have a birds-eye view of the display. Paddlers during nocturnal adventures will come to a quiet halt during the 15-minute fireworks to admire the brilliant display as it lights up the night’s sky. After the light show is complete, your group will explore the dark sea by using LED lights and the moon’s glowing rays.
